Interesting, little flawed

So, first, the baseline plot is quite interesting. The love story felt someone thought they needed to add a conflict that is just...bad. Its such a small piece of the story that didn't add anything to the story, but somehow I could feel the marketing push. The story is so short, I am not sure how that aspect of her could be expanded...except in a another really bad marketing way. I subtracted a star. I would have subtracted two, but it is only a small piece...lets hope the author keeps it that way. The magic dynamic has a really nice catch to it. I liked that. I liked the concept of the Order. I will probably get the sequel, just to satisfy my curiosity.

On the downside, the ending sucked...again, I think marketing needs to go out to lunch for two or three years and get a real job.

So, would I recommend spending a credit. No. If you are desperate for something to listen to, ok, get it...but wait till series is being sold as a collection and buy it then. The length, cost, and marketing are large strikes against...what may be...a very cool storyline.

great start to the series

wizardry and steampunk technology in a different era. I'll have to pick up the physical copy and give this a read as I thought the pronunciation of our budding warrior's name by the narrator was off...and frankly very distracting, I wouldn't pronounce "Heloise" as "Hell was" ....other than that..great performance, some unnecessary character development for characters we barely heard from again but otherwise looking forward to the next installment
